LISA Rinna is planning to launch her own family reality show with ambitions of becoming a bigger TV matriarch than Kris Jenner, an insider has told The U.S. Sun.
The actress and TV personality, 59, announced earlier this month that she was leaving Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after eight seasons amid rumors she was fired.

And a longtime Bravo insider has exclusively revealed that the mom-of-two’s goal now is to depose the Kardashians momager, 67, as the most powerful reality mogul in Hollywood.
The source said: “Lisa’s perfectly timed exit from the RHOBH franchise has set her up for a payday of epic proportions, because she has the kind of screen presence and colorful family lifestyle that you can actually build a major reality franchise around.
“The goal is for Lisa and her family to lock something down by May, and it’s going to be interesting to see if Bravo steps up and develops a new show for Lisa or if she pivots into streaming the way the Kardashians have.
“Lisa is kind of the T-1000 version of Kris Jenner, and she’s going to be utterly ruthless and relentless about nailing down her next reality gig.
“Stepping on other people’s toes is the last thing she’s worried about, and nobody is positioned better to be a successor to Kris and that franchise than Lisa and her family.
“Let’s see if she can pull this off!”
Lisa and her Mad Men actor husband Harry Hamlin, 71, previously appeared with their model daughters Delilah Belle, 24, and Amelia Gray, 21, on their own show Harry Loves Lisa.
The TV Land series premiered in October 2010 and ran for six episodes.
The decision for Lisa to leave RHOBH came after he contract expired at the end of last season.
Initial reports claimed that it had been mutually agreed upon between Lisa and Bravo.
Lisa – whose previous jobs have included playing Billie Reed on NBC’s Days of Our Lives and Taylor McBride on Fox’s Melrose Place – was said to want to “weigh other business obligations”.
But there was speculation that she may have been asked to leave due to a bitter feud with Kathy Hilton.
‘TOO BIG FOR RHOBH’
Following the initial announcement, Lisa later spilled the tea on some of the reasons why she left – including the death of her mom Lois in November 2021 and her fall out with Paris and Nicky Hilton’s mom.
She told Interview: “I f*****g hated this year. For a lot of reasons. My mom died, we all know that.
“But that’s not the biggest reason. The story just didn’t get told as two-sidedly as I would’ve liked. How about that?”
In the same interview, Lisa spoke out about her boozy blowup with Kathy following a night out in Aspen, Colorado.
She explained: “It was unfortunate that there weren’t cameras in Aspen.
“It was something that happened so spontaneously. In the moment, I didn’t think to turn on my voice memos.”
The U.S. Sun’s source said: “Lisa was simply getting too big for RHOBH and it didn’t make sense for her to keep sharing that show with Kathy Hilton when Lisa is perfectly capable of being a full lead in her own right.
“With her contractual duties to Bravo complete, she’s a true free agent, and will be pitched over the next few months by every network and streaming service.”
